We had the pleasure of visiting this Bed and Breakfast De Vossenpoort recently and from early on we knew that this B&B was something special. If we ever venture back to Utrecht we will definitely stay again assuming that it is not completely booked solid. From the first communications to checking out, we got that personal touch that you don’t get in many B&B’s which definitely separates this B&B from the large peloton chasing.
Their home and the beautiful and well presented suite we stayed in are both amazing and you wouldn’t know it from the entrance. Entering a door in a wall off the quiet street running alongside the canal, you enter into a long corridor with a low ceiling that seems a long way on your first visit. At the end Hans greeted us with a warm welcome and an equally warm cup of tea.
We stayed in the Reynaert suite for 3 nights and were not disappointed. The photos on trip advisor are a good indication of the accommodation but what doesn’t jump out of the photos is the feeling of space you have in this suite and the clear attention to detail in its presentation. The room's most notable features were the high ceilings, grand french doors leading to the private outdoor courtyard, the worldly and tasteful décor and the amount of light that filled the room. This coupled with the cozy atmosphere of the cellar bedroom which is tucked away underneath the living area giving a private, dark, quiet and comfortable bed. Providing all the ingredients to a peaceful slumber and a B&B to remember.
Let’s not forget to mention the breakfasts as these were very good and Hans went the extra mile to make the breakfast a highlight and a good start to each day. Overall a wonderful stay and a great end to our holiday.
